My Game Collection
I collect computer games. At least, that's how I consider it, given that I still buy these things, get enthusiastic about it, but hardly have time to play them. So far I bought over 1000 computer games. In general, I seem more willing to pay for computer programs than most other people. So far, I own 275 (non-game) computer programs.
As of March 2017, my Steam library contains over 550 games, my Gog library just under 150, and my Humble Bundle library over 220 games. My first computer game was SimCity, which I got for my 16th birthday in july 1991, followed by the adventure game Loom a year later. In general, I like adventure, simulation, strategy and puzzle games. I don't like arcade games, platformers, or card games.
My favourite games over the years are:
- Bolo (1987), the first multiplayer game I played, written by Stuart Cheshire, nowadays one of my computer network heroes.
- Loom (1990) (one of the first visual adventure games, by Brian Moriarty). Re-released on Steam in 2010.
- Glider (1991), a non-violent arcade/puzzle game. Re-released for iOS and Mac OS X in 2011-2014.
- SimCity 2000 (1993) (an open-ended building simulator)
- Myst and Riven (1993, 1997), immersive, tranquil, 3D-rendered adventure games by Cyan. Obduction (2016) and Zed (2017) are recent adventures, made by some of the same people, with a similar atmosphere.
- System's Twilight (1994) a puzzle story. Re-released as freeware in 2000.
- Avara (1996), a multiplayer shooter. A bit simular to present day Robocraft (2013), build your own robot and battle with it.
- WarCraft 2 (1996), a real-time stratgy game
- Railroad Tycoon 2 (1998), a railroad simulator.
- Escape Velocity Nova (2002), a space trading and exploration game. A recent, more playable, and free clone is Endless Sky (2015), which has a pretty good storyline.
- Civilization IV (2005).
- Darwinia (2005) (a real time tactics game, which reminded me a bit about Lemmings). Still available from Steam.
- Machinarium (2009) a puzzle adventure, and Tiny Bang Story (2011), an hidden object adventure, enjoyed by my children. Both are relaxing non-verbal hand-painted adventures, although Machinarium is a lot harder to solve.
- Minecraft (2011), a sandbox exploration, survival and building game.
- Creeper World 3 (2013), a real time strategy, a bit of a reversed tower defense game.
Giveaway of Duplicates
Like every collection, I have duplicates, mostly because I bought a couple of Humble Bundles. If you are interested in any of the computer games listed below, please contact me, and I'll give them away to you for free. Nearly all distribution is done by Humble Bundle, Steam, or Gog, which means you need an account at either of these Game Distribution Platforms. Titles preceded by an asterisk (*) are those I recommend, or have paid for. I usually only hand these to people I know in real life, but you can always ask.
If you see a title you care for, drop me an email. My email address can easily be found on this website.
